Inadmissible To United States

What does it mean to be Inadmissible to the United States?

Grounds of Inadmissibility apply to non-citizens who are seeking "admission" to the U.S. "Admission" is the term for a lawful entry into the U.S. that occurs after being inspected by and authorized by an immigration officer. An "Applicant for Admission," refers to:


(1) Non-citizens who arrive at a port-of-entry to the U.S.;


(2) Non-citizens who are already in the U.S. without being lawfully admitted, and;


(3) Nonimmigrants who are in the U.S. and are applying for Adjustment of Status.


If you are inadmissible to the U.S. for any of the following reasons, you may be ineligible to apply for certain immigration benefits and forms of relief. There are exceptions and waivers allowed for certain grounds of inadmissibility. See "Waiver of Inadmissibility," below to learn more.
